This version of Bridge supports both Rubber Bridge and Chicago Bridge.
Bridge is played by four players who form two partnerships. Players within a partnership face each other across a table. Traditionally, the players are referred to by the points of the compass - North, East, South and West. The two partnerships are North/South and East/West.
In Rubber Bridge a rubber is played as the best of three games. A game is won by the first partnership to score 100 or more points in successful contracts.
In Chicago Bridge you play four hands of Bridge. The winner is the partnership that scores the most points in those hands.
Team up with a computerized partner and pit your Bridge skills against two clever AI opponents in this free version of the classic card game.

Ratings and Reviews
A few observations:
Although I’m a decent player, I shouldn’t win 97% of the time on the hard setting.
The computer as north bidding partner:
Sometimes opens one no trump with as few was 13 points;
Is passive to opening bids or responding bids;
If south opens and north overcalls, south better place the final game contract because north will pass leaving the contract seriously underbid;
Where south has two long suits north fails to fix contract with proper choice
Computer playing defense:
Tends to cash out aces and Kings, a poor defense in no-trump. I’ve had a vulnerable Qxx hand then the computer inexplicably shifts suits leaving me the control in a weak suit.
Computer as bidder:
Never seems to takes obvious king finesse;
In suit contracts;
computer plays trumps even after they’re all pulled, losing control of the contract unnecessarily;
Frequently under bids an obvious game contract
Computer on defense.
Fails to play 3td hand high, handing bidder cheap tricks
Nonetheless, I enjoyed the game to a point. I don’t know if these issues can be worked out but it would make a real challenge on my hard setting if they can
Since the market does not have many bridge app
Pros: simple and easy to play
Cons: minor user experience issues
This is a game app replicating the classic contract bridge. The market does not have many Contract Bridge apps, and most of them are not good in design, like the skill of the computer opponent or the artistic elements. So this app can still stand out, albeit not achieving the good quality in general game app design.
Generally the app is fine. Below some points are noticed:
User exp.: During the card selecting phase, when choosing a card, the app displays the whole set of suit first. This is a redundant step. Most card game app can directly select that particular card.
Transition of the pages: It seems the app uses fade in/out heavily in the inter-pages navigation. The idea may not be that good as the whole process looks slow and not clear-cut smooth. A simple direct cuts (like usual apps) may work better.
The speed and smoothness of the game: In short, it is slow, even if activating the singleton selection. And indeed the last card cannot automatically be played. Most of the card game apps can have a quicker response after playing a card.
For the AI of the computer opponents, since I am not an expert bridge player, I should not comment much.
Overall, the app is fine and I enjoy playing it.
Nice app, but could use some improvements
I am enjoying this app very much. My suggestions:
1) I would like to see the hands exposed at the end so we can review the play.
2) Could we have a paid version without the ads, and includes the hands being exposed at the end? And could we replay the hand?
3) Please do something about the Black Jack ad. It is bad enough that it last 60 seconds: you can’t close it after you have viewed it. There is no little “x” in a corner to close it. I get it out of it by exiting the game, and then deleting the screen and then I go back into the app. PLEASE AT LEAST FIX THIS!!
Although the bidding is a little strange at times, I would give this 5 stars if we could get rid of the ads, see all the hands at the end, AND be able to replay the hand.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
